PURPLE•K® – KING OF CREATINE*
PURPLE•K has become a staple in any serious bodybuilder's subplement program, because it helps provide the subport you want for the strength gains you need to move big weight.* Many other creatines just can’t live up to PURPLE•K – they are poorly bioavailable and cannot even deliver a full and concentrated dose of creatine to your muscles.* Because PURPLE•K is "pH-correct," there is no loading, and little chance of bloating or water retention.*
THE SCIENCE BEHIND PURPLE•K
The one big problem with most creatine subplements is they become very unstable at the worst possible time – when you mix them with fluid. This unstable creatine converts into the waste product creatinine. This conversion is even more dramatic when the fluid used for mixing has a low pH. The pH scale measures the acidity of liquids. Your stomach contains hydrochloric acid that has a pH between 1 and 2. In this acidic environment, other creatine breaks down into creatinine ('kree-AT-ah-neen’).1*
Because other creatines break down in stomach acids, mega-dosing is common, but this only causes more problems because it makes you bloated and shuts down your creatine transporters (Crt), making you absorb less creatine – not more.*
PURPLE•K is the King of Creatine because it’s pH-correct creatine that utilizes an advanced pH-correct buffer that prevents creatine breakdown in fluids, including stomach acids.* As a result, PURPLE•K is delivered intact to your muscles, making it highly bioavailable and helping to subport real strength gains at a fraction of the serving size.*
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE BREAKDOWN
The diagram above illustrates the conversion process from creatine to creatinine, which causes serious side effects. This breakdown doesn’t happen when using PURPLE•K which utilizes an advanced pH-correct buffer to help lessen creatine breakdown in fluids.*

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does PURPLE•K work?
PURPLE•K is pH correct and fuels your immediate energy system by supporting adenosine triphosphate (ATP) (C10H16N5O13P3) and phosphocreatine (PCr) (C4H10N3O5P) stores.*
During exercise, ATP and PCr breakdown triggers the buildup of acid in your muscles – a state called acidosis – and this acid buildup causes pH changes inside your muscle, resulting in muscular failure.1*
By increasing ATP and PCr – two potent muscular fuels – PURPLE•K helps support real strength gains, rep after rep.* And, by utilizing its advanced pH-correct buffer, PURPLE•K works to provide support against the onset of acidosis and muscular failure, so you can achieve the real strength gains you need for your hardcore muscle-building workouts.*
How much water should I consume while taking PURPLE•K?
Regardless of whether or not you are taking PURPLE•K, you should always consume about 2 litres of fluids per day and sometimes more, depending on your activity level.*
Who can use PURPLE•K?
Bodybuilders all over the world are using PURPLE•K to achieve support strength gains.* If you are an aspiring bodybuilder or a competitive athlete, male or female, looking to excel, then PURPLE•K is for you.*
